Comfortable, clean and very well equipped.

5 of 5
Our party of four adults and three children (14, 13 and 12) found this a very comfortable base from which to explore the surrounding countryside. The kitchen was well provided with plenty of crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment, and everything about the house was clean and well organised. The owner Kate was friendly and welcoming. Altogether very highly recommended.

The log cabin is perfect! Extremely peaceful location and a glorious hot tub. We really enjoyed watching the meteor shower in the hot tub. Great for families and groups of friends.
